Sky Sports pundit, Johnny Nelson once a great boxer gave predictions regarding the match between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk. The show will take place on February 17th, and many are already excited, considering that they expect a great match. Nelson finds the words from John Fury, Tyson's father, cause for concern. Namely, John is worried about Tyson's training camp.

“It’s time, you can’t do nothing about that. It might not be popular to say it but if his own pops is saying it, and one thing I will say about John Fury, is that he will always speak the truth," Nelson told Pro Boxing Fans, as quoted by boxingscene.com!

Johnny Nelson: If he puts his * together, he still beats everybody

Nelson believes that Tyson is still a great fighter, who if he trains hard and takes the next challenge seriously, has a great chance of winning. Many believe that Usyk is the toughest opponent for him so far.

"He’s a straight-talking man. If he’s saying it you have to listen to him. But Tyson Fury, if he puts his * together, he still beats everybody. His last performance, if he’s honest about what he said [that he had a full camp], then his legs are gone. If he wasn’t honest [about properly training], I think he can turn it around."- he continued.

Johnny Nelson, on the other hand, is worried if the fight will even happen on February 17th. He believes that Fury's team could move the date so that Tyson is fully fit. Time will tell if that will happen.

"If he doesn’t fight February 17 then we have a problem. Because if his dad’s saying it now, it gives you a sense there might be a delay, they might want more time. I wouldn’t be surprised if they wanted to push it down the line a bit.”
